Summer Poem

“Her soul trembled on her lips like a drop of dew on a flower.”
Victor Hugo ‘Les Misérables’

In crochet lace I walk barefoot through the roses.  Petal laden path,  the scent of Summer everywhere.   Day dreams of the sea and white laced shores.    

“ Summer, 
an eternal poem.”
Kerrie Sanderson

Washed by the sea

Pale Wash Of Roses are in my Shop for Summer

A Hidden Peace

Un lieu de paix caché

In the quiet folds of morning,
 soft sun breathes in.
Peace like water surrounds

I make tea
and walk through the roses

slowly tending to the keeping of home 

and many hours working in my art studio 
Gentle brush strokes
Artiste doux coups de pinceau 

A hidden peace I find in the tous les jours.  A slow, calm life.
In  the quiet recesses of the day is peace. 
dans les recoins calmes de la journée est la paix  

paix quotidienne
everyday peace

washed by the sea,

Gentillesse Roses

  I began painting these pale wash of roses in the quiet depths of Winter. 

 Beginning on pristine french papier then venturing on to fine art canvas. Each surface creates its own variation of sheer and opaque flowers, so I am unsure of which I prefer. Currently I am favoring 100 % cotton canvas panels. 

 I have just begun listing a few in my tiny studio Shop. Nearly 20 paintings completed thus far with one large canvas remaining on the easel unfinished because the faint roses hold a beauty I haven’t the heart to disturb yet.

    Piles of empty canvas and bundles of french linen papier gather in the corners of my studio waiting their turn. I will continue to paint these ever so pale white roses into and through the Summer months.  Letting their quiet gentillesse flow from the sacré chambers within.  I will continue to list paintings in my Shop as I go.  

There are also tiny flower fairy statuettes Fée des fleurs that I have hand painted in a french style, new in the Shop for Spring and Summer. Always always inspired by Monet.
